Description Information
   Broadside, 304:228 mm., light age staining, creased on folds.
   Call for donations to the Jerusalem Ashkenazim headed by R. Samuel Salant (1816–1909), chief rabbi of Jerusalem and one of the foremost 19th-century rabbis in Jerusalem. In 1841 he reached Jerusalem, where the heads of the kolel Lita appointed him rabbi of the Ashkenazi community. A leading figure in Jerusalem, he became Ashkenazi chief rabbi in 1878, holding the position until his death. R. Salant strove to develop the institutions of the Ashkenazi community, which increased from 500 members at his arrival to 30,000 at the time of his death, and succeeded in obtaining for the Ashkenazim the official status previously enjoyed only by the Sephardi community.
